budget chair is supervisor farrell, i want to thank him as he will have a lot of meetings. and i want to thank the different departments represented here. you can see them, we will have a chance to identify them in a minute. again we will give priority of time to the residents, to the nonprofits, to people who work here in the community in district 10/11, to express what you think our budget should reflect. this is an important part. this is the second of at least five or six we are doing throughout the city. to give people the opportunity to tell us what their priorities are. and then we will work those into how we make decisions about our budget in the city. i wanted to begin by saying we are better and better each year. doesn't mean we don't have a deficit. we still have a deficit in the budget. this year coming $123 million, and the second year in the budget covering 2014/15 has $256 million deficit. we are not out of woods. but these numbers are better than $500 million and $700 million budget deficits that we used to have a few years ago. our city is doing better. we are concern
colleagues can we continue this item? >> chair farrell: supervisor mar. >> supervisor mar: i'm supportive of continuing this conversation. i think there was a disparity between ace and others, are saying the hundreds of millions of dollars of losses from bank fraud versus what our department reps are saying about what the losses are given the fixed rate versus variable rate loans and various financial holdings that the city has. so i want to see from the budget our independent budget and legislative analyst kind of what their numbers look like. i think that would have been helpful for today. i also wanted to say that i am also frustrated by the city attorney's response of the wait and see approach. i don't really know what that means. i'd like more specifics on what communications there have been with the other cities from richmond, to san mateo county and the various other cities and counties. and ideas about, as some from the public testimony said, we can take stronger leadership from our city to recover every single penny as people said. i'm looking forward as it comes back to us that

early in the evening and then with supervisor farrell -- the next time i am in your district i will look for you. >> supervisor mar;; as to the question about what the city has done, definitely not enough. i know that we as a body have had discussions the budget committee that i think you missed the meeting where there was a discussion of the various services and income support the controllers office percent of to us. but i think that communicated to you some of that discussion. there have been a number of other types of meetings between different factions, the groups that support city college , but i think there needs to be much more of a dialogue and the select committee or working group from the city and the stakeholders from the city college system to me is a good step forward in making sure that we are putting our heads together to support this important addition. >> supervisor breed: and i had to make other concerns i wanted to bring up. i received a number of correspondents about the potential for this resolution as it was prior to it being amended. that it could potentially imp
to assure you that we have been working hard to try to make it smaller. >> chair farrell: a few questions. so the deficit from general hospital on the revenue side, does in a incorporate the mental health -- program? >> the mental health reimbursement actually shows up in the second from the bottom on the mental health line, which is about 11.6 million. that's partially offset by some favorable patient operating revenues. in the san francisco general hospital, that revenue deficit is actually due to -- we had budgeted revenues from another transfer program. those revenues didn't come in. so it shows a deficit, but that revenue deficit is offset by an expenditure savings. we didn't have to make a transfer to get those revenues. so if you net that out -- i know this is convoluted -- >> chair farrell: the point being if you in netted that out then the surplus -- the expend tier deficit is greater than shown here. >> that's correct. that's correct. >> chair farrell: and then you're talking 31.2 versus 41.8 highlighted below. >> exactly. so the 45.9 million dollar number in the controller's si
that this initiative is well worth the support. thank you. >> chair farrell: thank you very much. >> supervisors, the rest of the presentation you have, i'm happy to go through it but it's pretty detailed. so supervisor farrell and i, in talking yesterday, felt that you can take a look and if you have questions obviously, speak with me. or if the committee would like, i can certainly go through them. >> chair farrell: thanks. supervisor wiener. >> supervisor wiener: thank you. thanks for the presentation. just a question. you went over this i think briefly before. but the 102.3 million in homeless services, can you break down what goes into that. because when you always hear different numbers about how much we're spending on homelessness, 100 million, 200 million. i know there are a lot of -- it interconnects with a lot of different services so i know it's probably pretty challenging. of course once we house a homeless person they're not homeless anymore depending on what kind of housing it is. so i'm curious to know. >> thanks for it the question, supervisor. here it is. so broadly speaking, wh
to that dialogue. i know it will be intense and i look forward to working on that. thank you. >> chair farrell: if there are to further questions for mr. wagner we'll go to our budget report. mr. rose. >> harvey rose: the bottom line of this request is $46.1 million. and this request, if you look at page 6 of our report, in table 3, it's paying for miscellaneous salaries, permanent salaries, temporary salaries, premium pay, holiday pay, and -- so it's a 46 million request while it is true that the bulk of the revenues are not coming from the general fund, they're coming from within the department, supervisors, if those funds did not -- were not needed, if there was not this deficit in salaries and overtime, then those revenues would cause the general fund to have -- to need less general fund in next year's budget. so it's -- the bottom line is this is a deficit. and fortunately, there are revenues that can help pay for this. but if they didn't have the deficit, those revenues would fund next year's budget. on page 4 of our report we pointed out the proposed supplemental would appropriate, as h
. >> thank you. >> chair farrell: is there anything more to the presentation you want to cover? >> just the only item is that the board of supervisors budget and legislative analyst worked with us closely on the legislation. they made some recommendations, which we're in agreement with. we thank them for their work and for helping identify some places where we could trim this down a little bit further. >> chair farrell: supervisor breed. >> supervisor breed: thank you. i know this is not great news, but it's better than what we had anticipated news. and i'm really happy that there are creative ways to try and figure out a way to deal with this huge deficit. i did have a more specific question. i noticed that some of the concerns, specifically with laguna honda hospital, were cost of materials, supplies, especially pharmaceuticals and food to meet patient care. and i know that the number of patients from the old laguna honda decreased in the new laguna honda. and so i guess part of what i'm trying to do is understand why was there an increase in something like food, or even pharmaceutica

wiener: thank you. >> chair farrell: supervisor mar. >> supervisor mar: thank you, mr. wagner, for the great presentation. i wanted to ask you about the good news in the last slide. could you explain a little more the 19 million that may come into our general fund through the igt program for seniors and people with disabilities transitioning. >> sure. so under the medi-cal waiver, the state's medicaid waiver, there was a provision to transfer seniors and persons with disabilities from fee-for-service into managed care. so basically instead of getting paid a certain amount when somebody comes into our hospital for a day, we get paid a flat month -- flat amount per person per month. so we -- the reimbursement structure has changed. as we've implemented that change, and as we've done analysis, and this is for san francisco, but also statewide, of the impacts of that change, it turns out that the reimbursement under the new managed care model is less than counties had been receiving for the -- under the fee for service payment model. so the counties and the public hospitals have c

[multiple voices] >> supervisor chiu's office has been made aware of this. >> about having to re-refer this -- to refer this to the planning commission for new environmental clearance? >> planning department. >> planning department. >> i'm sorry, you're talking about the legislation that i'm proposing, that that would have to go back to planning? first, this is not actually a hearing event. >> the legislation today, there is a provision in it that indicates the planning department has given environmental clearance for the legislation. that is already in hand with the clerk's office. with the amendments that are proposed, the planning department has not seen those in terms of giving environmental clearance yet. >> so, the resumption of the lottery intent here would implicate ceqa, is that what you're saying? >> it's not the resumption of the lottery. it's the condition that if the certain amount of new affordable housing is created under the proposition c guide

. >> chair farrell: thank you. colleagues, any other questions? okay. thank you very much, mr. rohr, for your time today. at this point, i'd like to open it up to public comment, if there are any members of the public who wish to comment on this item, please step forward. >> my name is vera hale. i'm a member of the advisory council to the department of aging. and every year, i come up here about cuts, and it's such a joy to be here and to be able to talk about what the needs of the people are, and what some of the things we think are coming in the future. i want to mention three things. one is the difference between -- one difference between calworks and medi-cal. cal fresh -- not calworks, cal fresh, has no asset limit. and this means that people will be able to apply, regardless of whether they have excess money in the bank or not. medi-cal will still, unless the state changes it, have an asset limit of $2,000 for one person, and $3,000 for a couple. and that's going to make it harder to ever get everything going easily back and forth. but one of the things that we found, anne hinton held

self-sufficiency. >> chair farrell: mr. rohr, i want to make clear, and thank you, we've spoke in my office before this hearing. you know, in the context, so people understand the context of budget cuts and so forth, and reduction for the mayor's budget reductions, i think the bottom line is you're able to achieve those cuts but also the overall budget increase for your budget is basically coming from the state and feds almost on a dollar-for-dollar basis so we're in a fortunate situation with your agency. >> that's right. i'll talk about some of that expansion in a couple of slides. one piece i forgot to point out which is significant is the increase in medi-cal that you see from 24 -- a little under 25 million to over 31 million. our role in medi-cal delivery is to enroll families and individuals who are eligible. we process their applications. we do outreach to get them in. we provide ongoing case management to make sure they remain eligible and continue to receive medi-cal benefits. the increase is because of the affordable care act which as you know will be implemented jan
that we have heard today from supervisor farrell that he would like to support these amendments, perhaps with some tweaks, that these are as far as tenants can give and we need to see these amendments adopted as is right now. and again, thanks for all your work, supervisors chiu, kim and yee who is no longer here. thanks. >> thank you. next speaker. >>> hi. i'd like to first of all just say that tenants are in need at this time. and i just really feel like tic owners knew what they were getting into when they purchased properties. and if they felt like they needed to have real estate financing down the line, that maybe they should have bought more modest investments. and that's just the way i feel. i'm sorry if i'm unsympathetic. i'm also worried about how this ordinance could be subject to abuse by developers. and i think that the amendments that i heard today from supervisors chiu and kim were really encouraging, the part that capped the maximum of four-unit buildings to be eligible. and i'm also afraid because i know that, you know, there can be straw man tactics and i was shocked to

>> supervisor farrell, did you want to -- okay. so, i have a few comments. so, first, i want to really thank all of my colleagues who have spent an inordinate amount of time on this legislation and potentially getting it to a place where it may be passed by the board of supervisors. i think coming into this legislation and this very lengthy and challenging debate is, you know, i came in, and i know a lot of people came in with recognition that we need to take into account the needs of all of our residents including renters, including tic owners. and i really want to -- in fact, we've had a number of hearings on this already. i want to thank the advocates on both sides who at least acknowledge the challenges that the other side faced. and there were folks on -- who were opposing the legislation vociferously, but who at least acknowledged the challenges that not all, but quite a few tic owners are facing. and i want to thank the tic owners and advocates who at least acknowledged the crisis in housing affordability in our city that affects many people, including many tenants. th
